Today’s top 10 posts are just scratching the surface of what was an exceptionally active week in the world of PlayStation. This week saw the releases of the weird and wild Tokyo Jungle, the charming and creative LittleBigPlanet for PS Vita, the grotesque and goofy Hell Yeah!, and a free Datura soundtrack on PSN, as well as The Testament of Sherlock Holmes on Blu-ray. We also saw the launch of the Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset – Elite (complete with video tour), learned more details about the enhanced New Little King’s Story coming to PS Vita on Tuesday (with a new trailer to boot), an October 9th release date for the PS3-exclusive papercraft game Derrick the Deathfin, word of the PS3-exclusive Assassin’s Creed Ezio Trilogy coming November 13th, and first details on Joe Danger: The Movie’s PS3-exclusive special features.
But that’s not all: Our intrepid EU correspondant Fred Dutton has been feverishly pumping out fascinating Q&As on Soul Sacrifice, Puppeteer, the origins of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, and how Tokyo Jungle came to be. Latin American correspondant Lorenzo Grajales chimed in with a new Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Q&A with Platinum Games, while Killzone.com Editor Victor Zuylen served up an excellent Q&A on the difficulties behind (re)creating Killzone in HD for PS3. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale also got the star treatment with a new behind-the-scenes documentary revealing their process for creating those eye-popping stage mashups.
But the next few weeks will be even busier, starting with next Tuesday’s release of Resident Evil 6 (day one on PSN!) and moving into Dishonored, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Okami HD, Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III for PS Vita. And guys — that’s just October. Clear those backlogs now, while you’ve got a chance!
